During the Camaro Chevelle chase scene, Reacher simply walks out of his moving car and joins a crowd waiting for a bus or possibly a tram while the police converge on the still moving vehicle. Why does everyone of the bunch of random people also waiting for the bus help him out by not alerting the police nearby? Two of them one African American, the other Caucasian shield him from view, while one African American hands him his baseball cap.

What is the rationale behind this supposed to be? Does a similar scene also occur in the book, One Shot? I'd say that whoever added this scene, may it be the screenwriter, producer, director, author of the book or someone else, was just looking for a more or less original and clever way of ending the car chase and letting Jack Reacher get away.

And, by having him jump out of the car when no one sees and then just letting it continue down the road while he's heading in some other direction by foot in this case to a crowded bus stop they managed to do just that.

I have actually read the book now and there are no car chases at all in it, so the chase and the scene s right after were definitely added afterwards.

Fun Fact: The notable bathroom fighting scene was also just a movie addition. When it comes to the reactions of the people already at the bus stop, I don't think there's anything out of the ordinary. Sure, they could've had some people run off, but, when you see some guy getting chased by a dozen police cars and he walks over and stands right next to you, I think most people would just stand there quietly and hope that the police sees him.

Not many people would try to get the attention of the police since that would most likely also get the attention of the perpetrator, possibly leading to them getting hurt or maybe even killed.

The two men who hid Jack from the police are just there as comedic relief. But, I wouldn't say that it's totally unrealistic. Without having any kind of statistics backing me up on this, I'd say that people who have been arrested before, and especially people that have been unjustifiably arrested which, sadly, happens sometimes, and especially to non-Caucasian citizens like the two gentlemen in the movie would help others hide from the police, as long as it's not too much trouble.

I like to think that they decided to not turn him in because Americans often are rooting for the person being chased in high speed pursuits. Anecdotally, Americans seem more exposed to high speed chases on the news and on live television, and honestly, it doesn't seem unlikely that a group of people would not report someone who simply walked away from a high speed chase, because it rarely happens that the pursued suspect escapes and it is often assumed that the police are overreacting.

Its one of the weaknesses of having Tom Cruise play Reacher. Imagine yourself in the same situation except a 6. Yea you'll give him your hat. The guy in the hat was a former baseball player: The significance is that Reacher sometimes uses these guys as aliases in his books.

Tom I didn't read much into the entire movie : I'm just curious what the director, scriptwriter, or author were trying to convey.

Not trying to be nit-picky I love cars more than I love movies One of the most clever chase scenes I have ever seen. Being from a big city like Pittsburgh, most people have had a run in with a police officer now and again. Think Stop and Frisk in New York The police do not have the credibility they once had, and big cities know the corruption that has overrun the police.

Imagine if every citizen did that for each other, how great the US would be. Absolutely genius and hilarious scene. Active Oldest Votes. Tom Tom 4, 1 1 gold badge 31 31 silver badges 43 43 bronze badges.

I would also add that I think most people don't trust in the police. Your answer raises some very interesting points, but would be much better if you could provide some evidence or source material to add greater credibility to your claims. Add to this the stereotyped inner city attitude towards cops and it is very realistic. Pete B. Do you have any sources to back up this claim? Catija, Jimmy Reese and other Yankee's second basemen.

However, Eric Pittman the actor in the scene, Tommy Lafitte, is not a former baseball player and rather someone who has had small parts in a couple of films.

What do you think of our picks? And he sent us this exclusive extended clip of the chase as he wanted all you TopGear. Anecdotally, Americans seem more exposed to read more speed chases on the news and on live television, and honestly, it doesn't seem unlikely that a group of people would car report jack who simply walked away from a high speed chase, because it reacher happens that the pursued suspect escapes and it is often assumed that the police are overreacting.

Yep, this is an actual Ferrari GTE police car. McQuarrie lingers on the details: close-ups of feet on pedals and hands on gear shifts. Sign up to join this community. Related

It all goes smoothly hilariously so until a literal cliff-hanger. Good news: you can buy a new, old Aston Martin V12 Zagato. They handle like cars.

The fingerprint of James Barr Joseph Sikora is found on a click in a parking meter where the sniper parked. But, I wouldn't say that it's totally unrealistic. The future may never see a click here like this. Reacher casually approaches the bus stop, where the crowd is diverse, a representative chhase of the city.

McQuarrie lingers on the details: close-ups of feet on pedals and hands on gear shifts. It chase one of the brutes, and all car needs is a way of staying jack contact with terra firma. Please click for source the role, Cruise learned the Keysi fighting method, a martial reacher system developed in Spain in the s for street fighting, specifically self defense. Driving is not second nature to these characters — it is all they can do to stay on the road, let alone keep up with one another.
